HEC Paris MBA program ranked #1 in Europe by The Economist

15 October 2014

HEC Paris enters the top 5 worldwide and ranks #1 in Europe for its MBA program, in this year’s annual ranking published by The Economist.

The results, released last weekend, reaffirm HEC Paris’ European lead at the forefront of business education.

The Economist commented: "Fifteen of the top 20 schools are American. However, HEC Paris, the top European school, has climbed four places to fourth."

The ranking takes into account a variety of factors, including educational experience, career opportunities, increase in salary and networking potential. The overall result shows HEC Paris’ excellent performance across the board with each factor reflecting the high quality nature of the program’s Faculty, students, career support and Alumni community.

Bernard Ramanantsoa, Dean of HEC Paris, notes: "HEC Paris is committed to its students across a number of spheres, which this ranking confirms. We make full use of our strong ties to the business world, offering an international MBA program that combines academic rigor with the reality of the current business demands."
